For the last two weekends we have had nothing but childrens parties, all of which have been lovely. I have made several different gifts, but finished them all at the last minute, so I don’t have much to show you. For the lovely Miss Elena, I embellished a lavender coloured tee with the letter “e” similar to Michaela’s one above, which I have made since. I think Michaela must have just slept in it when I took this photo, I really should have ironed it for the blog shot. I simply needle-turned the M in place on a tee from Target.
I did actually manage to get a photo of Master Mason’s Robot Apron, before it was wrapped. It was the second present I have made featuring the lovely Robot fabric I picked up at Candleberry Country in Yarragon, on our trip to Loch for the quilt hanging, a few weekends back.
I have been on the lookout for a feature fabric for boys presents, so I bought a whole metre of it. I rarely buy that much of anything. I wish I knew more about this fabric, it looks Japanese, but there is no information on the selvage, and I could not find it online in my rudimentary search for “robot fabric”.
Speaking of boys………………….
I never thought I would be a party to this. Not only did I allow it – I cut it!
This was for a “silly hair day” at school, and we cut the mohawk on the condition that it was temporary. Funny part is that we had the date for the “silly hair day” wrong – it’s next month! Rory is going to keep it until Friday, which is school photo day – there is no way he is having it in his school photo. He wants to keep it until he can show his mate Hayden, who is away in Queensland.
